Neighbor of TN murder suspect speaks out

A Tennessee man who has been charged with killing his orthodontist wife in their exclusive Brentwood gated golf community earlier this year has been freed on bond. 

Randolph Maidens, 42, is accused of shooting 34-year-old Dr. Rachel Maidens to death, leaving their 2-year-old daughter with the body.   

HLN affiliate WSMV reports that authorities received a welfare check call on the evening of April 21, 2013.  Shortly thereafter, police found Maiden’s body wrapped in a blanket with multiple gunshot wounds. The toddler, though, was found unharmed. 

Officials then executed an all-night manhunt. Maidens was not at the home when police arrived, but he surrendered to authorities early the next morning without incident.     

After spending a few months in the Williamson County Jail, Maidens was free on $750,000 bond, lowered from the initial $2.5 million bond.  A restraining order was put on money the couple held jointly. Maidens passport was revoked as well.   

District Attorney General Kim Helper revealed that an amended restraining order tells Maiden he cannot access The Governors Club home without being accompanied by attorneys and Brentwood Police Department officers -- giving 24 hour notice, reports The Tennessean.   

Helper also asserted that Maidens will have to wear a GPS tracking device. In addition, Circuit Court Judge James G. Martin III said he could not drive a car or see his 2-year-old daughter, who is currently being cared for by relatives.     

Maidens’ charges include homicide, a count of child abuse/neglect and two counts of tampering with evidence.

He has entered not guilty pleas to all the charges. Officials have not yet released any possible motives.
